Downtown St. Pete has experienced an overabundance of construction over the past three months. It's nearly impossible to walk through downtown and not run into a construction site. For starters, the demolition of the "cheese grater" building at 400 Central Ave begun. In the EDGE District, The District on 9th townhouses were announced and the site of Bainbridge 930 Central Flats started to undergo site preparation in anticipation for new apartments and retail. Also, The Chihuly Collection completed their move from Beach Drive to 720 Central Ave. We cannot wait for these projects to be complete, but for now we hope you enjoy this quarter's photo update!
Quick update on The Arlington where construction is progressing smoothly. The first phase, which consists of 12 of 34 town homes in the development, is currently underway and plumbing being installed now. In the next few weeks the foundations should begin being poured. Completion of phase 1 is expected in April or May of 2015.
A new townhome project in Downtown St.Petersburg is under development a few blocks west of Mirror Lake. This 34-unit development will feature homes between 1,700-2,100 square feet. Looking at the renders it appears that each townhome will be 3 stories with a 4th floor terrace, some of which will offer striking skyline views. This project will be a great addition to downtown.
We are excited to announce that The Arlington St Pete is coming soon to Downtown St Petersburg! Located at 8th Street North and Arlington Avenue North the urban contemporary community will offer thirty-four townhomes ranging in size from 1,700 to 2,100 square feet.
